A country whose diversity makes it a cultural melting pot of cultures, Malaysia offers cosmopolitan city life for a fraction of the cost of comparable cities in European and North America. A three-bedroom apartment in central Kuala Lumpur can be found for less than $600, while inexpensive tennis court rentals (about $6) and cinema tickets (about $4) mean that you can afford to enjoy the city’s recreational and cultural opportunities. There are white sand beaches along with bustling street life and wonderful festivals in George Town, the capital of the state of Penang. Visitors fall in love with the fresh food and fruits, the rich artistic culture, and welcoming people there. Thailand is right next door and travel between the two countries is easy.
